My Latest Wedding Chalkboards

I got a chance to do some GREAT wedding chalkboards this season. I feel that I'm becoming more of an artist as I get further along in my career and custom lettering/illustration has particularly emerged as a passion. I was asked to do a few boards for a 09/21 wedding and I was absolutely thrilled. Thanks to Helene and Danielle!

Welcome signage - 5 ft. tall and my largest board to date, yowza!

Signature Drink signage. Coaktails named after the couple's pet poodles, so adorable.

Signs to hang on beverage station - milk flavors

I actually got a chance to customize this existing hanging board for a client in California

Two Recently Wed Celebs

I speculated last year that these two would tie the knot, but they surprised everyone with a secret ceremony on August 23, 2014. Second marriage for Brad and third for Jolie-Pitt. Genius that they did it during Emmy week. Jolie, 39, and Pitt, 50, exchanged vows in a chapel at Chateau Miraval (South of France) and had their six children Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8 and five-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, participate in their nuptials. Very sweet. No pictures of course, but warm congratulations nonetheless. They have been together now for nearly a decade, unreal how quickly time has passed.
**UPDATE** First pics released on 09/01. Looks like People got the exclusive!

DWade, 32 and Gabrielle Union, 41 tied the knot one week later on Saturday, August 30, 2014. It sounds like it was an ALL white affair. Second marriage for both. Nuptials were held at Miami's Chateau Artisan Castle. Looks like Gabby wanted to be a princess. Good luck to them and warm congratulations.

Key West Wedding Welcome Map Turned Display

Wanted to share a Key West map that I did for a client on Etsy! I created a printable map and the client used "Montage" a company in Key West that enlarges files.

http://montagekeywest.com/
Not only did the couple include these at actual size inside guest's welcome bags, they were able to display it over sized in the hotel lobby on an easel!

How cool and thanks Casey for sharing! I hope you guys found a great place to put this in your house. Enjoy your hubby.

Check out the Etsy Listing to find out more info on this map!

Wedding D.I.Y. Decoupage Fun (Martha Stewart Weddings)


My audit of all the hottest wedding magazines is happening later than usual, but happening it is. Since I've been a part of Cut Card Stock's design team, I have ceased being lazy about actually executing craft projects. I always felt like I didn't have a ton of time before, but I've been officially bitten by the bug and try to make stuff as much as possible. I definitely plan on sharing a lot more D.I.Y. projects here with a wedding theme.

Needless to say when finally perusing the Summer 2014 Martha Stewart Weddings mag, I died when I saw this tutorial. I have been anxious to do a decoupage project so I got out my tools!

This tutorial can be found on page 291.
I mounted to a small piece of card stock and some patterned and glitter stock. 2 layers of Matte Mod Podge. My next goal is to decoupage some pages of vintage books to make coasters! This is also inspiring me to do some printables with some cute shapes!

I'll be back later with more goodies from this issue.
